Five streets - designing for connectivity

The City of Waterloo is undertaking a project to redesign five key streets which provide direct connections to ION stations in Waterloo. Help us make these spaces places that you want to explore and use.

These improvements were recommended in the 2017 City of Waterloo station area plans and will focus on improving pedestrian and cyclist access and connectivity as well as streetscape improvements.



Project update:

Public consultation has been an important part of this project and input was used to inform the final design. Thank you to everyone who live, work and play along or around these corridors for participating in one of our face-to-face engagement opportunities or who completed our online survey here. The pandemic had an impact on the project in 2020, however WSP has advanced the designs based on existing constraints and feedback and we are on track to tender the work. We have also decided to combine this work with the Farmer's Market Trail Stage 2 work for efficiencies and potential cost savings. This project will go to council again in spring 2021 to award the construction tender. Construction will begin thereafter, in the spring 2021.


The following is an overview of each of the five streets that are being redesigned:





This project is reflected in our 2019-2022 strategic plan, specifically: Improve all modes of transportation to make Waterloo more mobile, accessible and connected. To learn more about our strategic plan, visit waterloo.ca/strategicplan.
